The Curiosity Show Ep. 14 Taxidermy at NHMLA with Tim Bovard

You can see lots of mounted animals at NHMLA, from birds and bears to lions and walruses. Have you ever wondered who does all this taxidermy? Go behind the scenes and visit the lab of Tim Bovard, the Museum’s experienced taxidermist for over 30 years. Tim shows
us how he prepares a skin for display, an age-old process that is part science and part art. Keep an eye out for the pickled rat!
